Digital Impact on the Ground
The FAO Digital Services Portfolio (DSP) is a cloud based platform designed to disseminate information in the food and agriculture and related sectors and scale up agricultural services for smallholders and family farmers, fostering digital inclusion. It aims at making useful data, information and statistics available and accessible as digital services to rural communities, by providing them digital agriculture advisories that leverage the knowledge of Countries, FAO and strategic partners in the mobile world.
The DSP imports data and feeds it in a structured way, grouped into themes, with each theme addressing one distinct subject matter to the mobile devices of interested parties via a smartphone web app.
Designed by the Digitalization and Informatics Division (CSI), it is part of a wider Organizational effort aiming at promoting the shift towards digitalization and modernization in agriculture, through an efficient use of digital tools for major improvements in the food and agriculture sector in the field. It is meant to be a flexible platform for opportunities, reflecting the evolving nature of trends and needs in a fast-paced world where digitalization has become key, unleashing tremendous potential for development in the agricultural field and beyond.
